Internet Options under Security allows you to Restrict Websites from ever connecting to your computer. I found, find this very helpful. But it doesn't seem to work in Firefox and you have no similar option!

Can you install this option for Firefox or set it up so the Internet Security options work for Firefox, or so that I can import the list of websites I never want connecting to my computer again?

Thanks, Walter.

I have a few special buttons on my keyboard (Calculator / Mail). I've set them (on lxde-rc.xml) to run a simple bash script (Volume up / down using pactl). Unfortunately, I've noticed that only on Firefox hangs when I press these buttons (tested with terminal/slack/IDEs/Chrome, no issues). It's a ~2 seconds hang that prevents me from doing anything (tried scrolling/typing/clicking, nothing).

Any way to see what is actually happening / disable this behavior?

About 1 in every 40 or so times that I try to drag the vertical scroll bar with my left mouse button, it acts like I have clicked UNDER the scroller and starts scrolling down quickly until I release the mouse button. This NEVER happens in Chrome or other programs. It always works properly the next time I drag it.

Potentially related: About 1 in every 75 or so times that I try to drag the vertical scroll bar with my left mouse button, the scroller doesn't stay under my mouse cursor. It moves about half as fast. This makes it impossible for me to scroll to the bottom of the page because my mouse cursor gets to the bottom before the scroller, which means I have to let go and grab the scroller again to finish scrolling down. The scroller always stays with my mouse cursor on the 2nd attempt.

I've attached a pic showing what i'm calling the "scroller"

after recent updates, Firefox will not keep me signed into Yahoo mail for more than a few hours, regardless of whether the "keep me signed in for 2 weeks" box is checked. this problem started last week on my 4 Windows 10 computers at the same time, and the problem does not happen using Edge to access Yahoo mail.

for what it's worth, the url for the Edge Yahoo mail login page is https://mail.yahoo.com/d/folders/1?.src=fp

and the url for the Firefox login page begins exactly the same way but then continues with maybe another 150 characters.

I'm having issues with the WIX ADI not opening for my website and redirecting me to the create new web page screen. Whenever I try to open the ADI, the following appears in the console: https://pastebin.com/UMQhN8aX

Here's a video of what's happening: https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1-s-b0U94pCqtPnV0EqOEE9pRbBopeYs5

I've tried with a fresh version of Firefox and have tried Catalina 10.15.4, Windows 10, and Windows 7.

I've contacted WIX support and they've been very unhelpful and told me to refer to browser support. The functionality works fine in Chrome.

Any help would be appreciated.

I don't really know if this is a bug, or a feature of Firefox's JavaScript core engine. Say I have an array:

var array = [];

I set the length of the array to a very large number:

array.length = 155555555;

This now turns the variable array into an array with 155555555 blank slots. If I then do:

array[502039410402] = 5; // Notice that 502039410402 > the previously set 155555555 for length

array.length remains at 155555555, but the actual array is appended with a sudden index 502039410402 (i.e., index 155555553, 155555554, and then suddenly index 502039410402; see screenshot), with that element containing 5. Is this a bug, or an intended feature?

I would appreciate it if anyone could let me know.

Thanks!

I'm reluctant to use these notifications at all until I know what they could change without telling me.
